Netflix has really been churning out the hits lately, especially when it comes to the critically acclaimed Black Mirror. The British sci-fi anthology series is known for its social commentary and modern twists on favorites like The Twilight Zone and classic horror movies. The first two seasons were broacasted over the air in the United Kingdom, while season 3 and the upcoming season 4 were commissioned by Netflix.

Each episode of Black Mirror features a different storyline, different cast and variety of writers and directors. Though no information regarding a release date of the fourth season has been released yet — though based on past release dates we can gather it will be within the next couple of months —  there have been photos released that give us an idea of what some of the latest episodes will be about.

Our favorite? The fourth episode, "USS Callister," what looks like a spoof of — or homage to — Star Trek. It has a stacked cast, starring Jesse Plemons of Fargo and Breaking Bad, Cristin Miliotti of Fargo and How I Met Your Mother, Jimmi Simpson of House of Cards and Westworld, and Michaela Coel of the Netflix hit Chewing Gum.

IGN also released exclusive cast photos last week, one pictured below.
